Story

Guess How Much I Love You: An Enchanting Easter is a movie experience for very young children featuring three short films. An Enchanting Easter is 30 minutes long, and Fly the Nest and Treasure Hunt are 10 minutes each.

In An Enchanting Easter, Little Nutbrown Hare (voiced by Ky Baldwin) sees a rare and beautiful pure white fawn (voiced by Holly Simon) dancing in the meadow. He tries desperately to convince his friends of what he has seen, but none of them believe him. They think he has imagined it. To prove he’s telling the truth, Little Nutbrown Hare takes his friends to find the pure white fawn – but she turns out to be far better at hide-and-seek than Little Nutbrown Hare had thought.

In Fly the Nest, Little Nutbrown Hare (voiced by Ky Baldwin) sees Blue Bird’s (voiced by Kate Fitzpatrick) eggs hatch into little baby blue birds. Little Nutbrown Hare becomes best friends with the little birds, teaching them to sing, play and fly.

In Treasure Hunt, Little Nutbrown Hare (voiced by Ky Baldwin) and his friends go hunting for treasures to bring back to Big Nutbrown Hare (voiced by Andrew McFarlane). Unfortunately, their basket has a hole in it, and all their treasures fall to the ground along the way. Big Nutbrown Hare goes out searching for Little Nutbrown Hare and his friends. He follows the trail of dropped treasures, picking them up as he goes. Back home, he gives the treasures back to the little ones.

Ideas to discuss with your children

These three short films are just like the TV series, which is based on the familiar and well-loved children’s book Guess How Much I Love You. This movie experience gives very small children the opportunity to visit the cinema and see something that’s familiar and safe.

The slightly longer An Enchanting Easter (30 minutes) is suitable for children under six years. It has a simple story, clear moral messages of friendship and trust, and attractive animation. Fly the Nest and Treasure Hunt have less story and moral exploration but they’re still suitable for children under six years. In general, this cinema event will be slow and uninteresting for children over six years.

Values in this movie that you could reinforce with your children include:

  • problem-solving
  • helping others when they need you
  • cherishing your friends.

This movie could also give you the chance to talk with your children about real-life issues like:

  • going out with friends without telling your parents or carers where you’re going
  • staying out later than you were told to.
